Tragic Themes in Western Literature Reviews
This is a collection coming from the Golden Age of English Literature and Comp. Lit. at Yale, the 1960s. Amazon doesn't tell you who's writing; let me. Cleanth Brooks, editor and introducer; Bernard Knox writes on Oedipus; Maynard Mack on Hamlet; Chauncey Tinker on Milton; Henri Peyre on Racine; Richard Sewall on Dostoevsky; Konstantin Reichardt on Ibsen; Louis Martz on Shaw's St. Joan and Eliot's Thomas à Beckett. Life has gone on since then, but this was a great literature faculty and this is a harvest from its heyday. Not a single line sags or disappoints.
